· In Cosenza Cardinal Amato beatifies the parish priest Francesco Maria Greco and emphasizes his witness as a priest ·
To Franceso Maria Greco being a priest meant carrying out his mission like the Good Samaritan, who, on his way from Jerusalem to Jericho, “tends to wonds of humanity, caused by evil and vice, in order to revive the faith that has fallen dormant or even extuinguished altogether”. In this way Cardinal Angelo Amato, Prefect for the Causes of Saints, summed up the work of the Calabrian priest during the beatification at which he presided on behalf of the Pope on Saturday afternoon, 21 May, in the main stadium of Cosenza.
